Jargon Buster Directory  

The Central Source for all Jargon

Government - Education

The education profession especially at government level is heaving with education jargon.  Again just another example of inadequate academics and government committees who don't live in the real world , fail to take personal responsibility and are simply there to create work for themselves in order to justify their positions.

They have more departments, work descriptions, target descriptions and stupid impractical organisations than any 'banana republic' known to man.

This education jargon buster directory simply scratches the surface of a whole swathe of jargon designed to keep normal folk in the dark and let government members off the hook when it fails as it usually does.

They all seem to end up at Brussels like most other failed politicians.  Education jargon is the pits for me - the lowest of the low - the most obnoxious jargon ever invented.
